Bryant takes new job at Campaign Palace

Andy Bryant, the Bates Dorland joint head of client services and account chief on its pounds 17 million Heinz business, has quit to take a senior agency job in Australia.

Andy Bryant, the Bates Dorland joint head of client services and

account chief on its pounds 17 million Heinz business, has quit to take

a senior agency job in Australia.



He is joining the Bates network’s Campaign Palace in Sydney as one of

its five-man management team. He will also have responsibility for

Westpac bank, a major sponsor of the next Olympic Games, which appointed

the agency in the spring.



His move, for an indefinite period, reflects a growing trend within the

network to broaden the experience of senior managers by switching them

between offices across the world.



Bryant, 39, has overseen some of Dorlands’ most high-profile advertising

for Heinz. As head of the agency’s Bass lagers business, he was

responsible for developing the innovative ’back-to-front’ TV ads for

Tennent’s Pilsner.



’I’ve spent six happy years at Dorlands but Campaign Palace is a very

progressive and extremely creative agency,’ Bryant said.



Bryant’s departure means that David Wood will move from joint head of

client services to take full control. It will also precipitate a

reshuffle of the Heinz account team although Chris Clark, the Dorlands

managing director, said Bryant’s replacement was likely to be an

internal one.
